12oz bottle poured into a nonic pint.
A - Medium sized cap of tan head holds a solid cap. Pours a brilliant amber that leaves great lacing.
S - Dank, spicy, hemp-like earthy hops. Mildly bready with more toasty malt, noticable alcohol.
T - Starts with a lightly toasted malt, slightly sweet base that holds in the background in its entirety. Hop flavor peaks its head in midway with more earthy and spicy dimension. Finishes with good hop flavor and moderate bitterness to balance out. Crisp/dry mouthfeel with some lasting hops.
M - Just heavier than medium body, medium-light carbonation, finishes very dry but some sweetness early on.
O - Very solid pint right there, perhaps my favorite Red IPA to date. Hops come from a different angle than most American IPAs. Plenty of room for more assertive hop bitterness that would shy from being too one sided. Malt plays a great role in this beer though and this is quite drinkable.

This American Amber or Red Ale, is a interesting combination of beers styles that i approve of, though i am not a beer chemist, it sparked me to call a friend of mine who is, to have them explain this flavor to me. It is defiantly better then i thought it would be, although I had no idea what to expect from a 'red ipa' i was impressed with Sierra Nevada's Flipside. Its smokey dark appearance was a interesting factor, but its smell, was the sort of beer I wish they would bottle and smell as an AXE body spray. The mouth feel and taste where both outstanding in my opinion and I did really like this beer.
